8 PM – 10 PM, CATHEDRAL
The Cathedral invites you to a dramatic reading of Joan Didion’s evocative memoir Blue Nights, a follow up to her National Book Award-winning The Year of Magical Thinking. Performed by acclaimed actress Vanessa Redgrave and told in Didion’s trademark poignant prose, the evening is sure to be a unique experience. Guest artist Jimmy Owens, 2012 NEA Jazz Master and leader of Jimmy Owens Plus, will take part in the program on the trumpet-flugelhorn. The evening will be a benefit for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and Cathedral Community Cares.
